said the day it was released was the day that mitt romney lost the election. i wouldn't go that far except to say that it was yet another unforced error that continued to bring the focus on to romney and not president obama. looking forward to the debate perhaps that's a chance for mitt romney to shift the focus. we're starting to see him try to make the case in a more empathetic way. this video that he cut recently this new ad where it's a straight to camera delivery. we're going to need to see more of that, but it's really a tough hill for him to climb because so much of the negative focus has been on him for so many weeks now. >> eliot: i think you are right, josh. and this is the -- the debates are his hail mary maybe he'll get some assist from some bad referees who will call the play the wrong way. what should he do to get the completion in the end zone? >> i think when the debates matter is when somebody makes a really big unforced error like gerald ford insisting there is no soviet domination of poland. the problem is the president is pretty good at this. so i

, adjunct fellow at the manhattan institute. >>guest: it was the speech of a president running if re-election, not a hint of apology for america for the values in this speech, a lot of toughness, there was almost a focus only on the middle east and the muslim world. no mention of china, russia, the other trouble spots. it was all, fellow, here is what we expect of you. pull up your socks. let's cut the whining about outrage. look at your responsibilities to your people, to free speech, to the values of the united nations and to our values. he set some standards. >>shepard: he was tougher in this speech against those in the muslim world whom you mentioned than he has been in previous addresses. >>guest: very much so. there was no islam is a great religion, none of that today. there was just a statement about how important it is for these new countries feeling their way, led by new men, to get a handle on the violence that threatens the presence of americans in their country. one thing you said that intrigued me, he said we want to stay, we want to help you, we don't want to dictate, we want di

of the partisan fight that is our presidential election and other elections around the country. and i think it is difficult at times, frankly regrettable that some candidates have tried to seek political gain in characterizing this one way or the other. i really think what we should be focusing on is the important lessons we can learn from this, and sustaining america's engagement in a critical part of the world, whereas you know, there are so many other places that demand and need our attention and engagement. >> i know you spend a lot of time folk us on those, as well. senator coons, thank you very much. one of them is mali. >>> also in the speech today, the president used his platform to lay out his successes in foreign policy over the past four years. it was a very specific list, but does it add up? >>> and mitt romney took a stab at a vision for foreign policy and said there should be very specific conditions for a country to get foreign aid from the united states. >>> and a college student nearly dies after consuming alcohol. but how he got it into his body might shock you. the pace o
's right. and any presidential election one way or another it is going to be about the economy, no matter how hard the candidates try to deny that. the most amazing one perhaps of all time is indeed the incumbent obama who is running as though the economy during his term didn't happen or at least if it happened, it was the fault of somebody who was president four years before him and what he wants to talk about is the economy he's going to create starting in january 13 which will consist of people having green jobs, making windmills and solar panels. i think the american voters are probably getting a little bit frustrated that no one will talk about the economy as it exists right now, dropping to 1.3% in the second quarter. the united states economy is barely, barely moving. now i think voters want to know what's going on. dagen: what's going on with mitt romney, he can't seem to put together a cohesive discussion about the state of the economy that is resonating with voters. you mentioned in the column that he was talking about trade cheaters and energy independence, which seem wholly re

election-season line against iran. the cold realty is that after nearly four years of failed diplomacy and half-hearted sanctions that he opposed until congress forced his hand, neither iran nor israel believe him. he talked about diplomacy but that time is not unlimited. is that enough? i mean, don't republicans have a point here? >> it is hard to tell. i think "the wall street journal" was trying to give him a left-handed compliment. he was very firm yesterday and he was very clear. you know, i think diplomacy, in general, is a business of nuance. but yesterday he was about as firm and clear and it was a very beautiful defense of american policy or freedom of speech. he was very clear on the nuclear issue and thought he spoke beautifully about chris stevens. i think the editorial opinion this morning is very favorable to him. >> and to your point, i think he did speak very clearly. he did speak very forcefully and beautifully. but i think what republicans are saying is to what end? we have been speaking beautifully about these topics for four years now and the centrifuges are still t
